    Yes I am in agreement on withdrawl.

    Take a look at "Walmart" in the USA (ASDA in the UK) nearly all use paper bags.
    If paper is good enough in the US it's good enough here.

    Yup I agree. Plastic bags appear in every stream and every pond in every city. A complete nuisance. Get rid !!

    When I was a lad, my Mam always had her own shopping bag. With the advent of supermarkets these seem to have died out in favour of plastic bags. Perhaps we've now come full circle and mothers will once again have their own shopping bag/s

    Try walking in the rain to your car with your goods in paper bags. You end up with them on the floor.

    It mustn`t rain in America because they have been using them for years as seen in all the old films.

    I don't know if it was 'Garston' thing Taffy but my nan [and mum] always had a large shopping box on wheels that was pushed everywhere, I can't remember the name of them!

    Shopping trolleys. We weren't that posh up the north end, just shopping bags like this woman pictured.

    Of course, Supermarkets are a relatively new idea. When I was a youg child (1960s) there were no supermarkets. We used the Co-op and they delivered the stuff in boxes. The only supermarket I remember at that time was "Lennons" and it was the size of an ordinary shop and not a superstore. So supermarkets and plastic bags go together as there has never been an alternative. Maybe internet shopping and home deliveries is the answer.

    Yeah, Ged, those were the days when your mum used to shop day to day at the corner shop ? long before the supermarket pirates came on the scene! ...and put them out of business!

    Anyway you'd need a bag the size of a coal-man's sack to carry your weekly 'shop' these days!

    And don't get me started on the 'serve yerself' checkouts (I refuse to use 'em),
    they'll soon have us unloading the lorries and stacking the bloody shelves next.

    I understand that they also used to use old prams to get coke from the gas works in Garston !!
